    A Very Interesting 'Wake Up' Call On Statistics

    I used to have a sig that said "41% of all statistics are made up." You can spin numbers to say whatever you want. It's worked well for both the anti-gun and anti-smoker crowds...

    Pfffft. Nothing new here. Some of our politicians have been functioning without a brain for years... :uhyeah:

    No McNuggets? Dial 911!

    Wasn't there a similar wav file posted here a while back? A woman called 911 because Burger King screwed up her Whopper, IIRC.

    Have you taken up practicing a legitimate system? :idunno:

    The Haunting In Connecticut

    This looks interesting. It's weird seeing Elias Koteas play old men (as here and The Greatest Game Ever Played). I remember him from the TMNT movie...

    8th Degree BB Ninjutsu?

    You have to be recommended, yes. It's not my call. Now if I end up training with that person, knowing they're a godan (or higher), I'm not going to take it easy on them like I might with a lower ranked student. The last time I was in Japan I got an interesting collection of bruises from Hatsumi...

    8th Degree BB Ninjutsu?

    What charges, specifically, after you voluntarily sat for a test knowing that failure meant getting whacked with a shinai? :idunno: What? Since you're obviously much more qualified (at least in your own opinion), why didn't you point out to Hatsumi sensei that you would not have passed those...

    8th Degree BB Ninjutsu?

    Keep in mind that the Bujinkan is big enough that it is impossible for Hatsumi sensei to know much about every yondan taking the test. He assumes that they were recommended in good faith.

    8th Degree BB Ninjutsu?

    You mean as opposed to your veiled shots at the Bujinkan virtually every time you post? :rolleyes: You said (emphasis mine): Since you specified in Japan, that to me says that you think the Japanese are somehow lacking compared to your instructor. Are we talking about your instructor here or...

    Walmart Steals Your Cart Because You Won't Let Them Check Your Receipt

    Maybe it's because I haven't had enough coffee yet, but I just had this image of the fight scene from Airport, except with Wal-Mart greeters instead of religious solicitors. :rofl:

    Hot Topic Steals Yet Another Design And Sells It As Its Own

    Walmart Steals Your Cart Because You Won't Let Them Check Your Receipt

    If they did it consistently I'd probably make less of an issue of it (see my earlier post in this thread). It's kind of like my Indian brother-in-law who seems to get snagged for a lot of "random" checks at the airport. :idunno:

    Your Rights Online: Gamer Claims Identifying As a Lesbian Led To Xbox Live Ban

    Just playing devil's advocate here... Do we know for a fact that this was just because of a gamer tag? Or, like a member we once had here, did every in-game chat have to include a reference to her sexuality? Over the top, but this is what I mean: VZDeAMNIXg8

    Walmart Steals Your Cart Because You Won't Let Them Check Your Receipt

    I'm aware of that, but it would be fun to scare the **** out of the greeter for wasting my time. :idunno:

    Walmart Steals Your Cart Because You Won't Let Them Check Your Receipt

    Actually I think in a situation like the OP, I would talk to the responding cop and tell him I'd like the greeter arrested for unlawfully detaining me, and if they (the greeter) shoved the cart in anyway while I was holding it, I might tack on assault just for fun.

    Wow, I do this kind of stuff all the time, never had the cops called on me. Oh, and the Jawbone does suck. :lol:

    Walmart Steals Your Cart Because You Won't Let Them Check Your Receipt

    It's understandable. The fact that they profile is annoying though. I can stop at Wal-Mart on my way home from work, dressed in business casual, and they wave me by and tell me to have a nice day. But if I stop there on a weekend, wearing jeans and a concert T, with visible tattoos, I get...

    Should the Govt. License MA Instructors?

    And subsequently funds to pay for roads. Seriously, your state flag should have a washed-out road on it. :lol: Um, XS? Generally the voices in your head don't get tallied in the census. :p
